Inside Mill Valley: Meet City Planner Lisa Newman

We are proud to introduce you to Lisa Newman, one of our Senior Planners. Lisa started working for the City as a consultant, and shortly after, we invited her to join our team. She has now been working for the City of Mill Valley for a little over three years. Lisa manages a number of projects around town. One of the largest being the redevelopment of the Mill Valley Lumber Yard, as well as serving as the Project Manager of the Historic Context Statement. 

In addition to being a City Planner, Lisa is an outstanding baker and apricot lover. She has just published a cook book called For the Love of Apricots: Recipes and Memories of the Santa Clara Valley to share her apricot passion along with memories of the growing up in what today is called Silicon Valley but not so long ago was known as the Valley of Heart's Delight.
